Aecom bags place on £4.4bn school rebuilding push

Aecom has bagged a contract to deliver technical advisory services as part of the government’s £4.4bn school rebuilding initiative. 

The US multinational has been picked by the Education and Skills Funding Agency for its Priority School Building Programme 2 (PSBP2).

The project is the second wave of the government programme to rebuild the UK’s most rundown schools.

The second phase of the school rebuilding programme was first launched in 2014

As part of the contract, Aecom will offer services including geotechnical, acoustic, building condition, ecology, flood risk assessment and topographical services.

Aecom did not disclose the value of the contract award. 

The firm’s contract initially covers 15 schools across four areas, including the Midlands, Leicestershire, South One – which includes Norfolk and Somerset, and South Two – which includes Hertfordshire.

Further areas will be added over the course of the four-year contract “subject to performance”, the company said.

The work will starts immediately and continue until 2020, Aecom said.
